The Best Moments of the 2011 Oscars!
From the big winners to unexpected F-bombs and skits, the 83rd Annual Academy Awards were full of unforgettable moments.
The reviews are mixed this morning on Sunday night’s 83rd Annual Academy Awards. Some say the show as well as its hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway were underwhelming, while others are saying it was a star-studded night full of glitz and glamour.
Whatever your opinion, there were some moments of the show that will go down in Oscar history. Here are our top 5:
1. Opening Montage
This year’s opening montage inserted Franco and Hathaway into scenes from the majority of the Best Picture nominees, including Inception, The Social Network, Black Swan and The King’s Speech. The funniest one, and the insertion that worked the most seamlessly, was their interaction with Mark Wahlberg and the crew of The Fighter.
2. Melissa Leo’s F-Bomb
Did she say what we think she said? Yes, Melissa Leo let her emotions get the best of her when accepting the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. “When I watched Kate two years ago, it looked so f*&$ing easy,” Leo blurted out when referencing Kate Winslet. She apologized profusely, and even though the crowd laughed, we could tell she was embarrassed. “I really don’t mean to offend, and [the Oscars were] probably a very inappropriate place to use that particular word,” she said backstage.
